National Collection Day

Our National Collection Day will take place on the 20th of April this year.  We need all “shakers” we can get to help!  So if you, your colleagues, your school or friends are able to help, by shaking a bucket any time between 7am and 7pm on the day, holding an in house fundraiser in your place of work or holding another fundraising activity i.e. a Red Shirt Day or Bake Sale, we would love to hear from you!  Your help on the day will ensure that we can continue to provide the Special Olympics programme to our athletes throughout the region and nationwide.

Cops and Donut Shops

Cops and Donuts is a worldwide event for Special Olympics organised by the Law Enforcement Torch Run Committee. Currently, close to 90,000 police professionals in over 35 countries participate in this worldwide effort to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics.
We sell delicious, fresh donuts, baked by Kelly's Bakery in Wexford.
If you were available to give your time to assist at these selling points, we are always looking for a smiling face to help make these really fun events as successful as possible.  They are ran at “pop up” stands in different shopping centres in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow for the Eastern Region.

Polar Plunge

Our annual “Polar Plunge” is the perfect chance to get #FreezinForAReason!
Another Law Enforcement Torch Run supported event, it is one of the most fun campaigns to take part in, volunteer at and just to watch!  Every winter, around the beginning of December, we have 200+ Plungers jump from the pier at the 40 Foot / Sandycove Beach to help fundraise.  Temperatures are low but spirits are high and with special appearances from Santa, as well as many jumping in in costumes, it is the perfect family friendly event.  Registration opens late October, so watch this space!!
